The Best Gifts for Foodies
Wow the wannabe chefs in your life with these kitchen goodies and gadgets!

Spread holiday cheers with Absolut Limited Edition Sequin Bottles ($25 for a 750-milliliter bottle on reservebar.com). Grapefruit comes sheathed in sparkly pink; lime is dressed in festive green; and the O.G. Absolut shows up in silver.

The Joule Sous Vide by Chef Steps ($179 from Amazon), takes the guesswork out of the sous vide technique, so you can make restaurant-quality eggs and perfect steaks with absolute precision. It's operated with a user-friendly app, which effectively turns your phone into your sous chef! —Alexa Weibel, senior food editor
A collab between chef-gear maker Hedley & Bennett and Vans, the SK8-HI Reissue UC Kicks ($85 from Vans), will appeal to hipster cooks and skaters alike.
Have an amateur mixologist in the family? With the Mako Ice Bag & Mallet ($20), they'll be crushing cubes for all those juleps and Moscow mules like a pro.
Form meets function in the multipurpose Criss Cross Bracelet Bottle Opener ($16 from Amazon), a great stocking stuffer for your beer-loving BFF.
